Crowder College processes Federal Direct Stafford Student Loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program. Under the Direct Loan program, the funds for your federal loans will come directly from the federal government.
The following priority dates apply to making application for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan:
All loan data sheets submitted after the priority date will be handled on a case by case basis.
Students submitting a loan application at Crowder College will be required to complete entrance counseling before the loan can be processed. Instructions for completing the entrance counseling are found on the back of the loan application or on-line via the Crowder College web page, click the Financial Aid link then Student Loan link. All borrowing students are also required to complete exit counseling shortly before leaving Crowder College or if they drop below half-time status. Complete instructions for both entrance and exit student loan counseling may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.
Students requesting a loan must be enrolled at least half time (6 credit hours). This also includes the summer semester.
